Demonstration showing how to mount a flexographic print plate to a 3M Cushion-Mount Plus Plate Mounting Tape on a flexo cylinder or sleeve. This video shows how to correctly mount a flexographic print plate. Remove the liner in the first step. Then use two pieces of liner to mask of sections on the front and back of the tape. Leaving a gap of exposed adhesive. Position the plate properly using registration marks. Notice the plate is covering the taped seams this will eliminate tape lifting from the cylinder or sleeve. Use your finger to tack the plate into place. When the plate is in registration use a rubber roller to roll plate to tape using uniform pressure. Lifting the plate away from the tape remove the remaining liner, while rotating the cylinder adhere the plate to the tape. Starting at the middle of the plate use the roller and apply uniform pressure from edge to edge. Make sure to use the roller on the entire plate. Paying extra attention to the leading and trailing plate edge.Trim the excess tape from the edges but be sure to leave at least a quarter of an inch exposed plate. The flexographic plate is properly mounted if all of these instructions are followed.

Why buy a boring old lamp when you can make a unique one yourself?
Step 1: Buy a lamp-making kit
Buy a lamp-making kit. It will supply everything you need except the base and the shade.
Step 2: Choose or build your base
Find an interesting object to serve as the base, or build your own. Be sure it’s sturdy enough to support your lampshade and hold the rod straight. If you choose a hard base, you may need to drill a hole for the lamp rod.
Choose or construct a base that fits your lamp rod, so you won’t have to saw the rod down to size.
Step 3: Install the lamp rod
Push the lamp rod into the base so it’s sticking out a bit at the bottom. Slide on a washer, and screw on a nut to hold the rod in place.
Step 4: Level the bottom
Use a hammer and chisel, or a sharp knife, to trim the area around the washer and nut so they can be sunk into the base, making the bottom of the lamp flat. You may want to wear protective goggles for safety.
If you don’t want to carve into your base to sink the washer and nut, add rubber feet or felt pads so the lamp won’t wobble.
Step 5: Thread the lamp cord
Thread the cord of the lamp through the bottom of the lamp rod up to the top. Make sure that the end with the plug is coming out of the bottom, and that it’s not rubbing against the rod’s sharp edge.
Tape the wire ends together so that they slide smoothly through the rod.
Step 6: Attach the locknut and neck
On the top of the lamp rod, screw on the locknut and make sure the cord is sticking out at least three inches. Next, with the larger side down, screw the neck onto the lamp rod.
Step 7: Attach the harp bottom and socket cap
Slide the harp bottom onto the lamp rod with the open end facing up. Do the same thing with the socket cap, and make sure it is securely tightened.
Step 8: Prepare the cord
Pull the two ends of the cord about two inches apart. Use your wire strippers to strip the insulation off the cord, until about a half inch of bare wire is exposed.
Step 9: Tie the wires
Tie the ends of the wires in an underwriter’s knot. Make a ‘Y,’ then curl the wires down and back toward each other, and pull the ends through the resulting loops. This prevents the wire from falling back through the lamp rod.
Step 10: Connect the wires
Determine which is the “hot” wire and which is the “neutral” wire. Generally, the neutral wire is ribbed, but refer to the manufacturer’s guide to be sure. Securely wrap the neutral wire around the silver screw on the bulb socket and the hot wire around the gold screw.
Step 11: Tighten the screws
Tighten the screws and make sure the wires are tightly attached beneath them.
Step 12: Attach the socket shell and harp
Place the socket shell over the bulb socket, and tuck the cords inside so they won’t be visible. Squeezing the ends of the harp and slide them into the slots of the harp bottom.
Step 13: Attach the lampshade
Once the harp is on, place your chosen lampshade on top and—ta-da!—let there be light!
